    I have a lens hood that screws onto my lens, when using a cir. pl. what order should they go?

    Lens, Hood, Filter

    OR

    Lens, Filter, Hood

    Lens, filter, hood.
    That way you can rotate the polarizer by rotating the hood. :) Unfortunately, my lens hoods are the bayonet style, so I don't have that option... :(

    depends on the type of hood. If it is the rubber hood you can buy from adorama or B&H, I do lens hood filter, because the hood can hold back and allow rotation of the filter.

    Also, if you have a pedal hood (not the same length on all sides) then rotating the hood will give you some serious problems with vignetting and the hood being in the photos.
